An appeal against the refusal for planning to build a MOT garage and hand car wash on the site of the former Divine Cafe on the A4 London Road has been lodged.

divine a4 site1The original application was put forward in July last year but Wiltshire Council refused the application in October 2019, the reasons for the refusal were that it was felt the building location would cause a 'disturbance to tranquility' and spoil the view of the landscape of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The proposal also failed to give sufficient information on expected vehicular movements to and from the site, together with satisfactory information on parking.

Seven letters of objection were received from residents.

An appeal against the refusal was lodged yesterday, 28th May 2020.
